Top Critic Average
Funny, fresh, and full of surprises, Typhoon's debut blends genres expertly.
This comedy exploration experience blasts off with a lot of fresh ideas, but doesn't quite stick the landing.
Gentle anarchy reigns in this brilliantly humourous adventure.
A short and satisfying space adventure which really is laugh out loud funny
A beautiful, colourful, and bitingly satirical sci-fi Metroidvania that also has a welcome respect for your spare time.
With fun discoveries galore, I was always excited to step back onto the surface of this uncharted world
Journey to the Savage Planet is a charming and upbeat adventure about exploring an uncharted planet in service of your corporate overlords.
This is one of hundreds of games that ask us to kill and conquer, but never question our actions. The story tells us we’re here to have fun, and supposedly save the world.
Journey to the Savage Planet knows it’s wacky and embraces that. In 2020 I need to smile more, and Savage Planet made me feel great, even if I was covered in goo.
Journey to the Savage Planet puts you in a brilliantly colorful world, and tasks you with exploring to your heart's content. The moment-to-moment exploration is enjoyable, but the act of combat offers very little in the way of a challenge. The score and insane FMV adverts give Journey to the Savage Planet a lot of personality, but the tiresome parody nature of the writing really lets it down.
